What will I learn?

The B.S.N. in Nursing helps you to develop strong technical skills as well as the clinical judgment and critical thinking necessary to succeed in the rapidly changing healthcare system. Classroom study with experienced practitioners and scholars is combined with practice in a sophisticated simulation facility. You also gain clinical experience in community and hospital settings, and the program’s emphasis on global outreach provides well-established study abroad options.

Simulation learning takes place in the 7,000-square-foot RISE Center, a major regional educational resource and a center of excellence for simulation training and research. RISE senior faculty are recognized experts in simulation research. NCLEX first-time pass rate averages 94.5% for the last three cohorts.

The program offers two different tracks of study: one for high school graduates without a college degree or R.N. licensure, and another for students who already hold a baccalaureate degree in other fields, such as science, humanities or business. Either track prepares students for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). Those seeking their B.S.N. as a second degree can complete the program in 15 months. RMU also offers an R.N. to B.S.N. program for registered nurses.
